You see, I got this American Love
A brand new planet in the solar system
I kiss her neck, but I just can't look her in the eye
You leave for college at the turn of autumn
I spent the winter diving to the bottom
I'll kiss your neck, but I just can't look you in the eye
Yeah

[Chorus]
Big hearts, big hearts
Big hearts are for breaking
(Big hearts are for breaking)
Big hearts, big hearts
Big hearts are for breaking, yeah

You see, I got this critical conscience
A brand new black hole in the solar system
I dig my grave, but I just can't stand to step inside

And when they find out, they'll sound every siren
Break the door down to find a baby crying
You thought I knew, it's just not right to tell a lie

[Chorus]

And now there's no turning back
In the face of the sweat we share
There's nowhere to run, we're so unprepared
It's a new heart attack
Brand new bricks on my back to bear
Don't say a word or they might find us there

You see, I got this American love
A hidden planet in the solar system
But keep your eyes shut, I just can't stand to say goodbye

[Chorus: x2]

Big hearts are for breaking
Big hearts are for breaking
